It's not at all uncommon for new G30 mags to be very, very stiff when new... sometimes requiring the help of two men and a small boy just to get them loaded. When new the use of an UpLula is a great help.

Load your new mags to capacity and let them sit for a couple of weeks, unloading them and reloading once or twice during that time.

It seems to help relax the spring and generally alleviates the problem of first round FTF. Can't guarantee the results but it worked for me with a LW barrel. Apparently lots of people have had the same problem. Good luck.
